- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I understand that everyone has a budget, so I try to be fair with my pricing. Also, my standard agreement automatically includes 30 days of follow-up. So if you call me two weeks later looking for a specific shot...not worries.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to get a little background about the event. I once shot a wedding where the couple had set out bottles of sand. I had to ask. It turns out they were bottles of sand from their respective home towns, and the ceremony included pouring the sands into one vessel as a symbol of unity. So I made sure I captured this as it played out. Feel free to share the details.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
My first academic photography experiences date back to the early 90's, where I learned composition and developing images in a darkroom. Getting the right shot in the pre-digital days was a pain-staking process, but it taught me to be patient with the subject.
